Despite how goddam delicious it is, there's always been a major problem with spreadable chocolate like Nutella -- you have to actually spread it, with a knife, like a freaking monster. But that's about to change thanks to a new product from the brilliant geniuses at a Japanese food company: chocolate that comes in convenient 2mm-thick slices, just like the Kraft American Singles of your childhood/probably to this day.
Bourbon, a chocolate and sweets brand, is offering the innovative chocolate slices on its online store, but as reported by Mashable, you can only get them in bulk orders of a dozen five-slice packs for $27 (3,240 Yen). However, that might not last you very long, considering they are slices of freaking chocolate and will probably disappear after a few grilled chocolate sandwiches.

The company's website describes the slices as "rich" and "melting in the mouth smooth," and includes several suggestions for their use, such as wrapping them in crepes, rolling them in slices of bread with fruit, and throwing them on top of pancakes and toast. Or, just like cheese slices, they're probably great eating in a stack when you're lazy and nobody's looking.
